Day 3 – Kohistan Valley, Raikot and Fairy Meadows

We left in a local bus from Pir Vadhai bus station of Rawalpindi. By going through Wah Cantt and Hasan Abdal we entered in Abottabad, the first city of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province. A massive traffic jam was waiting for us on the road between Abottabad and Mansehra. After 3 hours of jam we reached Mansehra at nearly 12 am and had dinner at a local restaurant. Due to security issues, police stopped all public transport in Mansehra till 2am, then a police convoy lead all the buses toward Kohistan district.

Kohistan - Besham

Kohistan is where the Hindukush, Karakuram and Himalayan mountain systems meet and serve as a natural boundary for environmental regions in the chains of the Himalayas, Karakoram and Hindu Kush mountains. Kohistan is one of the least developed districts in the country and its national significance is the Karakurum Highway.
